WACO girls’ basketball falls in season opener
WAYLAND — Louisa-Muscatine sank the first basket of the game, and WACO played catch up from there on out, falling to the Falcons by a score of 50-43 in their season opener.
The Warriors kept the score close but could never quite take a lead, going into halftime down 28-24.
Aaliyah Brown led the team with 14 points. Erika Leichty scored seven, Jaelyn Unternahrer added six points and Jennie Greene put up five points.
Gaby Wagler scored four points for WACO and Hannah Black contributed three. Jalyssa Jepson and Cierra McArtor each added two points.
WACO plays again on Tuesday when it travels to Packwood for a game against Pekin.
